Oileáin News

With the succession of a new monarch to the throne of the neighbouring island etc, Oileáin is finally capable of being described as a “present fit for a King” as my mother typically described any bronntanas that even looked like it cost more than a ten bob note back in the day, even if he was “only”...

Inishturk, County Mayo

Has anyone circumnavigated Inishturk Mayo (the big wild one way out there, not the more civilised versions in Clew Bay or down Cleggan direction) and if so have they knowledge of or better still pictures of the cliffs of the southwest corner from about Dromore Head down to Carrickboorla area? Thanks...

Re: Sea Kayak stolen overnight Dublin D06 area

Thanks Chris. An interesting detail. Gardai had possession of my kayak within an hour of it going missing in the early hours Monday, but they had no idea how to trace an owner. Several Gardai googled away but got nowhere by shift’s end. One Garda then went home to his mother who, presenting him with...

Sea Kayak stolen overnight Dublin D06 area

My lovely sea kayak was stolen from the roof of my van parked on-street overnight. Romany Explorer, kevlar, white below yellow above with red trim. Foot pump. Tow rope. Rough home-made backrest. No name branded or anything. 20 years old but there are still a lot of good intentions invested in it. Ph...

Re: OSI Consultaion Process

I went at completing the OSI survey but the survey questions were way too targeted at hillwalkers for my purposes with regard to shallow water depth contours and the strange white band along the shoreline. Therefore I went for a full frontal assault. I wrote to the OSI guy setting out my case in cha...

Re: OSI Consultaion Process

Following up ……… The good news is that in the draft new version of the Discovery series 1:50,000, the foreshore has been divided into and depicted as beach, sand and shingle, mud, and flatrock, not just beach / other intertidal. I attach a photo AFTER of inner Dingle Bay from the sample sheet 78 sho...

Re: OSI Consultaion Process

Arising out of my having recently registered via Mountaineering Ireland for the OSI survey I have received two draft new Discovery sheets. First sight reaction : nice paper, no underwater contours. In an exchange of correspondence in the Irish Times in August 2009, copy attached, OSI let things rest...
